The Jacks were born in the seedy Red River street rock-and-roll scene of Austin, Texas. The band began as a pure instrumental surf rock group, albeit with a bit of an experimental bent that featured dark melodies, plenty of aggression, and a definite Texas cowboy flavor. After some line-up changes, the most significant being the addition of a permanent lead vocalist, the band has settled on a musical approach that preserves the best of their surf-cowboy roots.

The vocal talents of Bianca are quite strong, and the resulting surf-cowboy-punk mixture is surprisingly textured and deep. The music remains dark, but the lyrics complete a mosaic that is decidedly melancholy, with a good shot of angst. Overall, the final product is edgy, and The Jacks never lacked in the power department, always preferring to turn everything up and play loud.
